As for our group discussions, I prefer to have multiple threads of discussion for one book, whereas I've seen some online groups do just one discussion thread per book. I've found that by allowing multiple threads of discussion, it does require a lot more work to moderate, however it makes a much more meaningful and active conversation for all readers. I also try to get group members involved by having them volunteer to be the discussion leader. Sometimes I do not have a volunteer so I have to do it myself. This is fine with me but it is really great when members participate. I also have the group select the "book of the month" about a month and a half in advance so that members have a chance to get the book before we start reading it. Remember - everyone will have different opinions and there is the chance for conflict between members. Just be sure to keep the discussion going in a good direction and make sure everyone's opinions are respected.
Well I have so much more advice but I don't want to babble on all day (and I can). Feel free to message me if you want any more advice or have questions. I hope everyone enjoyed this and wasn't bored to tears. I promise my book clubs won't bore you so if you are interested in reading any King or YA Books with fellow book lovers, stop by my groups! Oh and stop by my blog... I promise it is fun and entertaining!
